I meant that, upon opening a .R file, extra windows get automatically created,
and laid out as in R studio: script file, "R shell", data in memory, graphics.

Side question: when opening a .R file, I get ESS[S] written in the modeline.
What must I do to get ESS[R]?  What's the impact of having S displayed?
